This is just a little feedback that I think would help some people have a better first impression with Soylent. I was so excited to try it out I didn’t even read the release notes, I just read the instructions on the bag, which seem to differ slightly from the notes.
On the bag it just says to dump the powder in first, then the water, then the oil last and shake for a minute, along with ice if it is to be consumed immediately. After shaking it for about 2 minutes with the ice and then pouring it out I found it to be a little chunky and very gritty, it was hard to get down but I chalked that up to trying something completely new.
After reading the release notes for v1.0 I saw that it said to add the water and power together and mix for 30 seconds (I did this for a minute with 3 cubes of ice for an individual 16 Oz serving in a blender bottle, then added 2 Oz of chocolate syrup and shook again for another minute), then to add the oil and shake again for 30 seconds (which I did for about a minute) and it was far more palatable and easier to drink. I actually kind of enjoyed it this time and actually wanted to drink more, I’ll attribute a lot of this to the blender bottle and the chocolate syrup but I’m sure mixing it individually had something to do with the texture of it also.
@ana @JulioMiles @MattCauble You guys should clear these up because there’s competing instructions. Another user and I just noticed a discrepancy between the oil amount listed on the bag and in the notes, see below.
